“This tennis season could have been very difficult as a coach,” Scott Mehalick said. “With only with one victory going into the last week of the season, the young ladies on this team have not once complained. As a coach you want to see what type of athletes you have win or lose. The young ladies on this team I have had the pleasure of being around this year has been fantastic.
Each match they played they did the very best they could do win or lose they came out each time a person that shown no quitting.
“For all the members on this team I thank you for your time and drive to become better players but most of all handling a situation without ever giving up. It is a credit to how good the young people of this team really can handle their athletic career.”
